My wife’s EB3 filing is current but she is stuck with me outside US without H1b stamp. Can i485 be filed while H1b employee is out of the US? Is biometric allowed via embassies in such case?
Canada vs UK vs Australia for peace of mind and a career in financial services? Don't have the patience for this h1b shit.
If you leave the US because of failed H1B attempt with a L1 visa, how hard is it to move companies under the latter? If you decide to leave your employer, what is the process like to keep the visa?

Heading out of the country on Friday — where do you guys exchange currency in the city? Is it better to go through your bank (I have the chase sapphire preferred if that makes any difference) or Currency Exchange International etc?
I moved to Canada aft not winning H1B. I recruited w some firms and went through final round. They said that they can sponsor me a visa, but i am not sure how they will take me. Is H1B the only option? If so, i am afraid that they wont be willing to wait till next year to hire me..
Does anyone have any experience with the United Chase Explorer card? Does the free checked bag apply to international flights (specifically to Europe)? If I book basic economy, would I still get that checked bag + a carry on? How does seat selection work on basic? What priority boarding group is associated with this card? I’m assuming the card alone will not make you eligible for upgrades, does the united club card do this? The explorer card is pretty cheap annually, but is this even worth it?
I got a name change status on my H1B extension status. This is after RFE response was submitted. What does the status mean? Do we get a decision soon?

I am sure I am not the first one asking this question on this forum. I moved from Deloitte US to Deloitte Canada a few months ago due to visa issues. I want to move back to the US. I have a very strong and supportive network in the US. How easy is it to get L1A if I spend a year in Canada? How soon can I get a GC if I move back on L1A? Anything else to keep in mind?
Places where tipping is expected, but don’t let you do it on a credit card, suck. I’m looking at you, valets. And you too, Sonic Drive-in
In 4 days, I will be completing 60 days of my lay-off from Deloitte. But, I am not at all worried, and taking time to ensure I get on right team/opportunity, which takes my career ahead. Why can I afford to to so? Coz, I am not on stupid H1B, and just became Canadian citizen 2 months before this pandemic started. Seems like all those 7 years of wait ( i used to call it jail term here due to limited opportunities) was totally worth it in terms of stability it brings. Happy Canada Day!
New grad consultant here. What are the perks of enrolling for amex rewards. Will be traveling for my first engagement on Monday. Thanks
Unexpectedly leaving consulting for industry. Background isn’t in apparel but got an offer to join a large international apparel company as a product director and decided to make the jump. Current TC is $183k with annual bonus between 10-20%. New TC will be $200k, $50k signing, annual bonus of 15-40%, and progression path to VP. Will also be managing teams around the world, so opportunity to travel internationally, which is a perk in my book.

Hi All, Am a developer mainly working with SQL and I want to move to AWS (devops), so I started to learn & practice few tools such as terraform, saltstack, prometheus, etc. But I do not have hands on a live project, any ideas if companies would take in beginners in AWS ? Even though there are cloud projects in my domain it is a bit difficult to get into those projects as my lead & manager give me the standard answer "you're a critical resource for our project" :( Any advice guys ?

Hi ladies! I recently joined consulting and I’d love to grow my network & learn from strong female leaders. I want to hopefully apply and work at the MBB at some point and I’d love to network to learn more about your journeys/experiences etc & also make some friends in the industry haha Let me know if any of you are interested to connect over a cup of coffee ☺️☺️
Hello everyone, I am a Deloitte auditor and on a H-1b visa. My long term goal is to eventually go back to my home country. Should I still invest in Deloitte 401-k? I just want to know what the deductions are if and when I decide to go home and take the money. I don’t want to miss out on the match that Deloitte does but assessing if it’s worth it and if I will lose much of my money in taxes. Also I currently invest at home (fixed deposits) and get 6% returns. Thanks for any inputs in advance

Does anyone work in cloud strategy? I am just about to matriculate out of ccg into cloud strategy group at Deloitte. What sort of work do they actually do?

EY Parental leave question: how many weeks were you actually out? When I took my leave 3 years ago, I counted total of 21 weeks of leave. That’s including one firm winter holiday week. I remember I initially thought I would be back after 16 weeks, but then in the middle of my time off I got an email from Leave Team with the breakdown and it actually was 21 weeks. Can someone who took leave recently tell me the actual number of weeks?
